Compass

Compass

A Poem by Ally Monique
"

Cuddling, at its finest.

"
Here, the sound of melting thoughts
chime words warmer than honey
and,
sweet nothings pour out of lips,
that are anything but empty.

Tangled knees wrap around
the wrinkles of a red cotton blanket;
continents of skin lie underneath,
joining together like Pangea,
they are one,

Two lovers wanderlust
for skin left dusty and dry;
Sinking into each other's compass,
no land was left unexplored.

Your little poem packs a powerful punch! Lovely capture of an exquisite (I'm sure) moment it time... 'joining together like Pangea/they are one' is brilliant... as is 'Sinking into each other's compass...' Altogether it is both innocent and sneakily bawdy (the last line was telling). Excellent work, Ally! Seems spending a little time away from the WC is doing wonders for you all around... ;)

Short, but sweet! I enjoyed this to death. The imagery did its job and drew me in thoroughly, and the flow, alongside the simplicity of it all, kept me engaged til' the end. Good work!

I just felt a lot of innocence and it made me go soft and softer. I have to fight this sort of feelings not sure why it makes me feel uncofrtable with myself. That said there is no influence over your wting as I can picture how this unfolded even. So the image of a melting thought dissipating into randomness does not mean empty as it is filled with touch and a feeling that says to me you are wanted!.

Heart warming

Thankyou

"continents of skin lie underneath"....great image...

"sinking into each other's compass" very sensual but with warm fuzzy kind of feeling mentally and emotionally, almost more than physically...

when the sweet nothings are really filled with meaningful intent...the emptiness evaporates.

I really like the way your poem retains a kind of innocence, in spite of the subject. Romantic and wholesome.
